A man aged 28 is believed to have hacked the Facebook accounts of minors to obtain child pornography images. He was referred to the Paris prosecutor.

But now that the computer seized from his home was analyzed, it proves that he has hacked Facebook accounts which 80 149 have been identified. 75 of them belong to minors and about 850 child pornography images were discovered on his computer.
